What a surprise, Wikipedia is wrong multiple times - who would have thought?

Dag Hammarskjöld wasn’t the only posthumous winner, he wasn’t even last.

Ralph Steinman won posthumously in 2011 - his award came 3 days (and 25 years) too late.
Aaron


"Steinman died 3 days before his 2011 Nobel was announced." The MP Committee didn't know. Only technically posthumously,

See https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/medicine/2011/steinman/biographical/

"Unaware of his death at the time of its announcement, the Nobel Committee made an unprecedented decision that his award would stand."

"Unprecedented" means very rare.

Since 1974 Nobels cannot be awarded posthumously.


Posthumous Nobel PrizesFrom 1974, the [size=4][font=Alfred Serif Regular]Statutes of the Nobel Foundation stipulate that a prize cannot be awarded posthumously, unless death has occurred after the announcement of the Nobel Prize. Before 1974, the Nobel Prize has only been awarded posthumously twice: to [size=4][font=Alfred Serif Regular]Dag Hammarskjöld[/font][/size] (Nobel Peace Prize 1961) and [size=4][font=Alfred Serif Regular]Erik Axel Karlfeldt[/font][/size] (Nobel Prize in Literature 1931).[/font][/size]
Following the 2011 announcement of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, it was discovered that one of the medicine laureates, [size=4][font=Alfred Serif Regular]Ralph Steinman, had passed away three days earlier. The Board of the Nobel Foundation examined the statutes, and an interpretation of the purpose of the rule above led to the conclusion that Ralph Steinman should continue to remain a Nobel Prize laureate, as the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet had announced the 2011 Nobel Prize laureates in physiology or medicine without knowing of his death.[/font][/size]

@Aaron - can you list/count ALL the posthumous Nobels? "Wasn't only" is a bit vague. So far only two are known for sure.

I could look them up, but so could you, so I won’t.

My point is made, namely, a Nobel Prize has been won for vaccines, the winner wasn’t deceased at the time, but it probably wouldn’t have mattered, Nobel Prizes are awarded posthumously.

Ralph Steinman’s 2011 award wasn’t even unprecedented (which incidentally means ‘never happened’ or ‘not known’ before) because even if you only take post 1974 awards into account there is still at least William Vickrey in 1996 - so to say ‘unprecedented’ in 2011 is entirely incorrect.

As a point of order, I object to the title of this thread, as I believe that many of the Nut Jobs also hail from the Left Wing.

A lot of people (whatever happened to Pete Evans?) believe that vaccines are the evil work of Big Pharma and the Capitalist System, and that healthy living and homeopathy is all you need to naturally bolster your Immune System. The Goddess is under assault and the Earth is fighting back by creating viruses.

Yeah, Right.
I agree, there are nut jobs on both sides of politics. They used to teach in Politics class that the political spectrum is not a straight line but a circle. Laid flat on a table the centre is the point closest to you and left and right spread out from there. The more extreme each gets the more the differences start to become similarities till they meet at the furthest point away from the centre

Small sample size but I have 4 extreme anti vaxxers in my work / family circles. I would rate three of them as centre-left and the other as hard left (though not extreme left)

Takes all kinds!
BrentonGolding

Also Known as Horseshoe theory. The Far left and the Far right are the same. Its a fairly flawed way of representing the political spectrum, like the 2d Left to right chart. Personally I think the Political Compass is a better way of measuring it, even though that brings with it its own set of flaws...

As for Far right Nutters, I think we don't need to look any further than the Newscorp political commentators, you all know who I mean. Perhaps we should also include our old mate Don, assuming he's still trying to get under everyones skin.

No one is actually getting vaccinated, the stats are a lie.
Vaccinated will begin dying soon.
Vaccinated are dying outside the vaccination hubs.
Vaccinated spread COVID more than unvaccinated.
VACCINES DONT WORK.
They are not real vaccines.
They are untested, I won't be taking them.
Why is the MSM lying to us? What are they hiding?

Sure more will come to mind.
Mr. Lane
A few more:
- Big pharma is hiding the effectiveness of Ivermectin
- Medical apartheid!
- Natural immunity is a more effective way
- You'll be taking boosters for the rest of your life
- There are metals and nanoparticles in the vaccines.

Blah blah blah pedophiles something

Yeah.

I've also got some anecdotal RWNJ stuff, courtesy of my SIL in....Kweeensland. She had previously indicated her political leanings. We spoke the other night.

Aged 60, comorbidities including a blood disorder, smoker, but won't get the vaccine because there's no need up here. Besides, Dan is only making the numbers up down your way to scare people and control them. It won't happen here. We won't get Covid because we're healthy. We're free up here, ha ha ha ha! You're mad for getting Astra because it could have killed you. I'm not going to take that risk! Fark that!

If she dies from Covid when it rips through her area (adjacent to Logan) I'm not sure if I'll even bother to travel to pay my respects. Fair dinkum.

One should not take any notice of a hypocritical brainless moron such as Candace Owens.

It is just so pathetic. Of all the wonderful women of Colour such as Cori Bush, Tamika Mallory, Leslie Richardson, Simone Biles etc., they give this brainless piece of s..t air time.

No wonder the world is truly screwed.

Yes, that was don mentioning that, I had a bit of a chuckle at that, never fear there would still be an element of smoke & mirrors just a question of how much.

We had a half sized MCG of chooks, suppling to Farm Pride in the late 1900's and they were sold under their free range banner and there are a few tricks to what goes on with the operation.

And yet if a person of colour or LGBTI or transgender complains about discrimination, people like you would tell them to suck it up. Call a spade a spade right? And here you are losing it over a truly innocent comment.

Candice Owens is a person of colour is she not? If it pleases you here's 3 more wonderful women. Katie Porter, Linda Miller & Jane Elliot. I would rather those three wonderful women on TV and Social media. Not a hypocritical oxygen thief masquerading as a Conservative such as Ms Owens.

What the hell does it matter what colour she is??? Typical far left BS comment.  Let's separate us all into our separate tribes.

Do you think that people are racist because the left are separating everyone into their own tribes? Not the fact that anyone who are racist are just ignorant twits? That is a typical far right-wing headbanger comment.

Moron ????

I'm lucky enough to have a big veggie garden but you have varying success - the most successful thing is parsley which is self-seeding and endemic now, we graze on it for salads and and tabbouleh. Every three to six months we plant another crop of lettuce with several different varieties for salad and use them until they go to seed and just rip them out and put new ones from Bunnings in. Chilli is another thing I've had lots of success with, you can harvest and dry them out for later use. I don't generally use any insecticide because I just don't have to.  

Carrots, corn and onions just aren't worth growing, they're too cheap at the supermarket and need too much water (corn especially). Tomatoes often die before you harvest unless you plant them at the exact right time, they're very frustrating. Sage and rosemary are very easy to grow and we use them a lot with roast potatoes and stuffings etc - although there's culinary rosemary absolutely everywhere in South Australia like shopping centre carparks etc, it grows incredibly well here as does nasturtium and lavender.

Give cherry tomatoes a go, last bush I had fruited continuously for 12 months and are reasonably pest and trouble free. My sister grows ox heart tomatoes? (She refers to them as uglies, they are) by far the tastiest, in my view.
Do the same as you with lettuce and just planted for the first time some corn, so a WIP. Also climbing cucumbers.
Fresh chilies freeze well. As does Rosemary curry leaves, lemon grass, ginger and Kaffir lime leaves (always bung one or two into the rice steamer makes a difference).
Unwanted coriander roots also get the freezer treatment, for stock or soup, not much is wasted at our place.

Something that has long troubled me is that ‘100% organic’ eggs still come in shells.

It’s the greatest food mystery since ‘best before’ dates on salt.
